Chord Charts

Above and beyond talent on a given instrument, professional session musicians possess a set of skills that makes them uniquely equipped to handle the very specific demands of the recording studio. First and foremost, session musicians are able to listen to a song and write a chord chart very quickly - usually after one or two listens to the song. Not only does this take the pressure off the client, who might not have the theory background to do this, but it also gives the musicians the ability to quickly grasp the contours of a given song so they can play it correctly and with feeling right away.  In Nashville, charts are written using a number system that very simply and elegantly allows the musicians to play the song in any key - usually depending on the voice of the demo singer - without having to re-write the chart. And speaking of which, playing in any key is another one of the skills that all pro studio musicians posses .
